Chocolat

5 comments

This seductive beverage was inspired by the one prepared in the movie Chocolat. Rich, dark, and smooth this hot chocolate is subtly uplifted with a hint of vanilla and the spice of ground chile. (Do not use chili powder—the mix of spices with cumin and oregano. Use pure ground red chile pepper like the rich pasilla, chile negro, or ancho.) In the cafés in Europe, hot chocolate is usually prepared with cream and melted chocolate rather than milk and cocoa, and served with a dollop of whipped cream on top. Here, experience the best of both worlds—this recipe is very rich—it can be made with just milk and is quite delicious. If you use bittersweet chocolate, you will need the larger amount of sugar, with semisweet use the lesser amount and then taste. Try just a few pinches of chile or about 1/8 teaspoon and then taste—and add more if desired--I like this recipe with about 1/4 teaspoon so it warms the tongue. For those who don’t the heat of chiles, cinnamon can be substituted in its place.
